>>Citizens increasingly live in a world, which they are not capable of shaping. If you are not capable of speaking the economic language, it is difficult to become a meaningful voice on the question about how the economic and political system is governed (...) We increasingly see the economy as something separated from the broader society and, in many cases, outside of the sphere of democratic debate.<< – Andrew Haldane, chief Economist, Bank of England.

This group is about looking at economics from the point of monetary history and commodities. It is about thinking outside of the contemporary box of modern economics and our derivatives based consumer-driven society.
